As many of you know, I’m a BIG fan of tai chi and qigong. I’ve practiced them for more than 10 years and absolutely love the gentle flow, balance, and healing benefits they provide. I nudged my friend and colleague, Risa Gaull Brophy and she agreed to share her expert advice on qigong as it pertains to fibromyalgia and chronic illness healing. Read on to discover the surprising benefits qigong has in store for you!
Unlock Your Healing Potential…
By Risa Gaull Brophy, BS, MQT
What if you had the power to help your body heal just by using your breath, the focus of your intention, and gentle, flowing movements?
Good news… you do!
For thousands of years, the Chinese people have been using the mind-body science of QiGong (“Chee-Gong”) to heal and strengthen their bodies. QiGong means “Energy Work”, and is a gentle system of exercises which stimulate and balance the energy (Qi) in your body to promote health and relieve stress – kind of like acupuncture without the needles!
Check it out at my FREE upcoming webinar, “3 Secrets to Energize Your Life!”
Western medical research is now finally beginning to validate what the Chinese people have known for thousands of years. There are thousands of studies, and more being done every year, on all the amazing health benefits of QiGong – including decreased pain and stiffness, increased immune function, and improved sleep … to name a few.
Statistics also show that 90 – 95% of all illness has a stress-related component. When we’re worried, anxious, or in pain – the body is in a constant state of low level stress. This causes it to secrete cortisol and other stress hormones which throw off your digestive system, your hormone balance, affect your brain function, and create chronic inflammation in your body, which we now know is the underlying cause of all illness and disease.
One QiGong student who was living with chronic pain said, “By staying calmer, there is less tension in my body, so there is less pain as well. By moving slowly and gently, I was able to gradually increase my range of motion and the strength of my little-used muscles, which gave me hope that my body was not broken beyond repair.”
The beauty of QiGong is that everyone can do it, regardless of physical ability. Any of the movements can be done smaller, slower, sitting, or standing – some can even be done lying down. You move within your limits, and let your body be your guide.
So, if you want to maximize your body’s ability to heal, have less pain, more energy, a calmer mind, and a more peaceful spirit – then please join me for the “3 Secrets to Energize Your Life!” FREE webinar:
